I was in residence for a month and the staff were friendly, many of them volunteers. Outside of the program I was registered for, I was able to experience other classes and they were quality also.
The dorms are an inexpensive way to stay but be prepared for bare minimum amenities. I stayed in a large dorm with 20+ beds and we were fortunate to have a accessible bathroom with shower and toilet. The smaller 10-12 bed dorms must use the bathrooms down the hall. I had friends who stayed in a shared 2 twin bed room and to envision it, think cruise ship room in the lower level. Yes, they are that small. If you need nicer amenities book at the Annex but understand the style is austere as well. But you are here for the R & R right?
The food is wonderful and the dinning hall staff are very friendly! Food is self-served cafeteria line but don't be put off by that. When you find your favorite organic dish or freshly baked good such as ginger scones or carrot raisin muffins that means you can return for more and take a couple back to your room for afternoon snacks! Take your tray and eat outside and at the picnic tables while enjoying the view of the lake and hills.
The trails are great but beware the map is not accurate for Brother's Trail. Check with the front desk people and they will guide you. Very serene and wonderful place to rejuvenate.
Of course the yoga classes, noon dance, and drum circle are equally invigorating. Choose your preference and experience different instructors to experience the same class but with a different flavor.
